Summary

Navjot Singh Sidhu has also been disappointed by CM Charanjit Singh Channi regarding private power agreements. In the first cabinet meeting of the Channi government, Sidhu was hopeful that he would take a big decision regarding electricity, but Channi had announced to waive off the outstanding electricity bills of up to two kilowatts. It was decided to add one lakh connections cut off due to non-payment of dues.

Navjot Singh Sidhu has again become an attacker on his own government on the prospect of black out in the coal-starved Punjab. Sidhu has said that private thermal plants that do not stock coal for 30 days should be fined. Simultaneously, Sidhu while advising the government said that now reducing the dependence on private thermal plants, the Chief Minister should make agreements for purchase of solar power rapidly.

Navjot Singh Sidhu has been vocal on the issue of electricity in Punjab even before this. He always advocated the cancellation of private power purchase agreements of the BJP and the Akali government. When Captain was the Chief Minister, Sidhu had held him responsible for not canceling the agreements.

Now the captain is not there, then the new Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi seems to be surrounded by Sidhu’s questions. Earlier, Navjot Singh Sidhu had said that he is paying Rs 11 per unit for the electricity that the common people should have got at Rs 3 to 5 a unit. These days coal crisis has arisen in thermal plants in Punjab. This has a direct impact on power generation.

Amidst the power crisis, Sidhu again attacked the government on Sunday. He has said on private power purchase agreements by tweeting that the government should monitor and prepare to deal with these agreements. He has written that the government should take action against the thermal plants that violate the rules. He also stressed upon the government to buy solar power.
